4 Reasons To Rock Mini Twists This Winter

The winter season is the perfect time to try different protective styles. The cold weather is harsh on our hair; so a style that will keep your hair protected during these months can be very beneficial. One of my favorite protective styles are mini twists. Although they are time consuming to install, the benefits of wearing this style will be worth it. Here are four reasons you should try mini twists as your protective style this winter:

1. Take a break from your usual hair maintenance routine

For most naturals, wash days and styling can take some time. Installing a protective style such as mini twists will give you a break from your usual hair maintenance routine. They are easy to maintain and take little to no effort to style. If properly maintained, mini twists can last anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks.

2. Style Variety

Mini twists can be styled in so many different ways. Whether you pin them up, wear them in a ponytail or wear them down, mini twists offer a vast array of styling options. The ease of styling is also a plus. It usually takes me less than 5 minutes to style my hair when wearing mini twists, which leaves plenty of time for other things.

3. Protect your hair from the winter elements

Mini twists can help to limit exposure to the cold weather. Styles that help to keep your hair protected will keep you on track with your healthy hair goals.

4. Being able to wear stylish hats and accessories

If you’re like me, you often have trouble wearing hats and other hair accessories because of the size of your fro. With mini twists, you can easily rock different styles of hats and hair accessories to jazz up your winter wardrobe.

 

Will you be trying mini twists this winter? What is your go-to winter protective style?

Great post! I would definitely love to see some advice about mini twists on fine natural hair. As much as I adore the look of mini twists, I find it really difficult to wear the style because it looks so different on my fine natural hair. Tips anyone?

Your twists look so thick and healthy. I’m gonna wear my hair in twists next month and try them a bit bigger like yours. Looks lovely !! 🙂

Great article! I tried mini twist a few weeks ago and love it. After using protein and deep moisterizing conditioners, I twisted my hair again. I wish I did this last year, especially since I wear hats (with a scarf) for most of the winter. I’ve learned if you want it to last, use your scarf instead of your bonnet.

I love mini twists. I typically rock them after a month of braids or twist extensions to give my hair a break. A day long event but worth the month of not having to deal with my hair.

Your twists look wow. I’v tried them so many times, they look nice ONLY for few hours and they shrink up, and do not hang and do not move, not an inch. Any advice?

Wash, detangle and moisturize, add styling products and put in 4–5 jumbo twists or braids to dry. Style your hair when it is nearly or completely dry and your twists will be mostly frizz free and not shrink much! Good luck!

I tried fluffy/loose twists and they ended up looking like the above pics. So basically twist tight at the root and loose as you go down the length of your hair and that will make your twists look fuller. I did the style on a day old twist out. Hope this helps

I tried mini twists and they looked terrible. My roots were puffy and the style just looked a bit “scalpy”. Styles like this are hard for people with fine hair like me.

You know my hair is very fine but very dense. So when I did mini twists they looked sooo scalpy as you stated. But, I tried fluffy/loose twists and they ended up looking like the above pics.
